Web makes your millionaire match search easy
You go to the same bars, you see the same people, you interact with the same people, says local single Shannon O'Donnell. And it just gets old."
Like so many people in her situation, Shannon turned to the internet for dating.
"I started off and met tons of people, she says. I probably went on 100 dates. And then one day, I had a little pop up that said to go to millionairematch.com, and I said, well, I'm dating all these guys. I might as well date one with money."
She logged on, and after a few emails and phone calls, Shannon snagged herself a sugar daddy. They had a series of weekend rendezvous.
He definitely had a lot of money, Shannon says. He showed up in his escalade and had already rented me a suite in a hotel and he had stayed in a hotel away from mine, which was nice, not presumptuous.
Despite the mutual interest, Shannon says the relationship eventually didn't work out because he lived in Atlanta.
We went out to great dinners, went to some shows, went shopping. He was definitely a sugar daddy, absolutely."
There are dozens of online dating sites aimed at matching men with money with women who want it. Rich men looking for arm candy, someone to spoil, even extra-marital affairs.
